Dress-Old Navy/Boots-Williams/Cardigan-Target/Jewelry-Nordstrom's Rack, Target, Black Sheep
This Old Navy dress was one of my summer staples...comfy and the light loose material keep me cool during the heat, plus it has pockets! I loved it so much, I even bought it in pink. I have so many light summer dresses that neglected when the weather gets cooler...so I decided to break out one of my favorites and winterize it! Because it is a collarless button up, I was not sure if I should go with a cardigan or blazer...but today's schedule had no meetings, I opted for one of my many leopard cardigans...keep me warm in my heat-less office. To keep my legs warm, I dond tights and my flat brow boots. During the summer, I usually wear the dress with a thinner belt, but today I went with the heavier leather belt.
All in all, I think this outfit came together well and I was successful in my attempt to cold weather-ize this great dress.
A funny story from my kids...
Alex got 2 gerbils for his birthday two weeks ago. When we bought them, I made the pet store owner make sure they were both girls...I did not want procreating gerbils on my hands. Well, Saturday morning I was awakened by Alex screaming "gerbil babies". I ignored him, thinking he was just playing around. But as his screaming continued and Jack chimed in, I went to check out all the commotion...OH CRAP...there were six pink, furless, squeeking baby gerbils squirming around in the cage. Turns out, one of the gerbils was pregnant when we got it. The little things are totally freaking me out!!!
As I sit here and watch the weather on CNN, I wish safe times and minimal damage to all effected by the hurricane and storms.
